Kimonos

Kimonos are a unique piece of apparel, with the ability to elevate any basic outfit. Layering a stylish kimono over a simple dress or a basic jeans and T-shirt combo will add colour, a pattern and create a new drapey silhouette and movement. Cheap kimonos are also a perfect beach cover-up. Kimonos have an ancient and rich cultural history in women’s fashion. Originally, 'kimono' was the Japanese word for clothing, currently used as a general term for traditional Japanese clothing. Japanese kimonos originated as separate upper and lower garments (trousers or skirts), or one-piece garments. In the Heian period (794-1192), a new kimono-making style emerged; the straight-line-cut method, cutting the kimono fabric in straight lines. Straight-line-cut kimonos have advantages: Easy to fold, suitable for all weather and can be worn in layers. As layered kimonos came into fashion, Japanese people developed affordable kimonos of different color combinations for seasonal colors or their political class. As warriors wore their leader’s kimono colours, battlefields became as showy as our modern fashion shows! With so many samurai clothing to make, kimono makers improved the craft and it grew into an art form. Kimonos became more valuable, handed them down to children as family heirlooms. Nowadays, Japanese people rarely wear kimonos in everyday life, reserving them for occasions as weddings, funerals or other special events fashion, such as summer festivals. Today, Kimonos are trendy fashion pieces and stylish alternatives to ponchos and cardigans.
